ONE CALL SENDS A ROOFER, NOT A SALESMAN
Robert Roofing & Gutters, Inc. is a second-generation company based in Norfolk. It is a full-service roofing and home improvement company that provides free estimates and affordable solutions to your roofing, gutters, siding, and window needs.
Robert “Rob” Greene founded the company in 1980 and runs it today with his son Robert Jr. “Robbie.” Their goal is to provide top-notch workmanship at an affordable price.
“I decided to start my own business after I noticed that homeowners were being charged very high prices for a mediocre job,” says Rob. “This bothered me. I knew that if I could offer customers an exceptional job with fair pricing, that I could make a difference.”
Rob himself started roofing at the age of 13 with his father for his father’s construction company. Rob learned everything about roofing from the “great old-timers” who were up on the roof working right along with Rob, teaching him everything he now knows.
Today, Robert Roofing is fully licensed and insured, and performs work on residential and commercial buildings plus new construction. They have an “amazing crew” that offers various types of roofing (asphalt, rubber, low-slope, specialty shingles, etc.) as well as other services including gutter installation, new downspouts, vinyl and wood siding, coil stock metal coverage, soffits, and chimney repointing and flashing.
Did you know fall is peak roofing season? Rob says it is very important to have your roof evaluated before the cold winter months. If you need a new roof, or roof repairs, now is the time to do it.
“It's easy to brush off some minor wear and tear water damage or damaged shingles but these are strong indicators that you need to replace your roof. Don’t wait until spring to replace your roof, as doing so can exacerbate your problems. Any damage that you’ve discovered can only get worse during the winter with freezing rain, ice, snow and sleet. It's best to be proactive instead of dealing with emergency roof repairs at the last minute.”
Robert Roofing will try their best to restore your roof and not sell you a new one. But if you need a new roof, their expert installers will make sure the job is done right the first time.
For the warmer months, Rob stresses the importance of roof ventilation which can also help with energy savings.
“The proper roof ventilation allows proper airflow between the attic and the outdoors. If a roof isn’t properly ventilated, hot air can become trapped inside the attic and cause your entire house to heat up gradually like any oven. This puts a huge strain on your home’s cooling system and leads to a noticeable rise in your monthly energy bills.”
